SWINDON Town are close to signing striker Kaiyne Woolery from Wigan Athletic, according to reports.

Town manager David Flitcroft has prioritised bringing in a new striker as he continues his summer recruitment drive, with the club having been linked with a move for Woolery for several weeks.

That switch now appears likely to be being completed imminently, with BBC Wiltshire reporting that 22-year-old Woolery will sign on at the County Ground for £350,000.

Woolery has risen to prominence on the back of a match-winning performance in last season’s National League play-off final while on loan at Forest Green Rovers.

He scored twice as former Town manager Mark Cooper’s Rovers beat Tranmere 3-1 at Wembley to win promotion to the Football League for the first time.

Woolery netted four times in 19 appearances for Forest Green after joining the club on loan in January – his third club of 2016-17 campaign.

He started the season at Bolton before allowed to leave for Wigan on free transfer over the summer but played just once for the Latics before being sent out on loan.

Woolery was first signed by Bolton from non-league side Tamworth for £10,000 back in August 2014 and has scored three goals in his 30 appearances for Football League clubs.
